Message from the Chairman:
Until we can all say ‘TYPE NONE’, I extend my gratitude and thanks to JDRF for giving me the security and strength to fight Type 1 Diabetes for my daughter! I am humbly honored to be the 2016 JDRF Gala Chair and look forward to seeing you on February 6, 2016 to support all children with diabetes so they too can face each day with courage and hope.

We're the stop at nothing type
JDRF exists for the millions of children, adults, and families affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) every single day. Their determination to overcome this disease strengthens ours to end it by funding life-changing T1D research.
T1D is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin — a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.
Your participation in JDRF events ensures that JDRF can continue funding critical T1D research. With your support, this research will continue to bring us closer to a world without T1D.
JDRF is an accredited 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency.
